“… This morning, the Rockland County Board of Elections counted 4,673 of the remaining 5,125 absentee ballots to be counted. After the votes were counted, our lead held at 3,067 votes. With only 452 ballots left to be counted (excluding special federal), our campaign can now declare victory with 100% certainty. In the coming days and weeks, the Board of Elections will finish counting all absentee ballots and certify the election results, so that I can be sworn in on January 1st …”
Even more remarkable, Lawler won a district that has just over a 2-1 Democrat enrollment advantage.
Jaffee is a hardcore gun control advocate so it’s a blessing she’s going.

An excerpt from last night’s Tucker Carlson:
“… They used the courts to neutralize the Republican Party’s single most effective get out the vote operation, which for generations had been the National Rifle Association. Not enough has been written about this, but anyone on the ground saw it. Thanks to legal harassment from the left, the NRA played a vastly reduced role in this election, and that made a huge difference in swing states like Pennsylvania and others …”
Anyone paying attention knows the NRA has brought the majority of their problems upon themselves, first through the lack of proper oversight by the Board of Directors of NRA’s executive staff and the questionable ethics of some of the Board members, and second by turning the Second Amendment and gun rights into a partisan Republican issue.
The first issue can easily be addressed if the Board took corrective actions, removed Wayne and cleaned house. I predict they won’t do that. However, one way or another that is going to happen:
“… Nonprofit law experts told The Trace that LaPierre’s removal is assured if James can prove even a fraction of her charges. While dissolution is unlikely, they said James won’t be satisfied with the ouster of LaPierre alone and expect fines, overhaul of governance procedures, and removal of complicit board members …”
The second issue also has an easy fix: NRA needs to stop blowing off Democrats, their own members, constituents and politicians, tell gun activists to be involved with Democrat party politics especially their primary elections, and stop pretending large urban areas and states with Democrat majorities like New York do not exist. It’s not about money, although they have plenty of that. It is about spending resources wisely which NRA does not have a history of doing.
